Benign metastasizing leiomyoma.
Indian J Pathol Microbiol. 2010 Oct-Dec; 53(4):802-4.IJ

Abstract

Benign metastasizing leiomyoma (BML) is a rare condition, affecting predominantly reproductive-age females with uterine leiomyomata and is most often associated with multiple benign-appearing smooth muscle tumors in lungs. We report herein a case of a 38-year-old woman who presented with multiple uterine fibroids for which hysterectomy was carried out on her. Postoperatively, she developed left-sided pleural effusion. Computed chest tomography (CT) scan revealed multiple nodules in both lungs and pleurae. Histopathology of one of the pleura-based nodules revealed a neoplasm composed of interlacing fascicles of spindle cells with uniform nuclei. The tumor cells were positive for alpha-smooth muscle actin and negative for CD34 immunohistochemical stain.
